The Best of Boomer Bloggers Celebrate Mother's Day 2015

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers, and Moms-to-be. Being a Mom is a full-time job that, no matter how much preparation one believes they have accomplished, there are always surprises, joys, stomachaches and pains that cannot be planned for, prepared for or anticipated. 

Boomer Bloggers this week pay homage to the wonderful women who raised us, loved us, taught us, and provided role-models for us.

In honor of Mother's Day, I am posting this picture of my Mom and her youngest great-grandchild. Visiting the younger generation this weekend, Great Grandma, the elementary school librarian, brought a bag of books for the two of them to enjoy.

Laura Lee pays homage to the women who came before  - her great-grandmother, grandmother, and her mother, in a previous post, Kansas Women's History: Three Generations of Incredible Women.

This week Laura Lee, in her blog Adventures of the New Old Farts, explores Libre, a rural hippie commune in her new county started by a group of 1960s folks seeking an alternative lifestyle. The community thrives today. 

Who influences your financial decisions? In a survey, millennials say mothers influence their finances more than any other family member, but Mom ranked fourth among people age 50 and older, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, reports on The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide.  Mom also ranked low among college graduates, the highest-income households, and Republicans.

  2. many 50 years olds don't have mothers to consult. My 54-year old daughter and two sons do, however.
